'[PIC]: Ethernet controller'
2000\08\17@043249 by Gudmund Berggren

Hello everyone,

This is my first mail to this list..

I am going to develop a small PIC-based device hooked to 10BaseT.
I browsed through the PIC-list archive and found some very interesting
sites, for example
* The (unofficial) PICmicro On-Line Tutorial (http://www.botkin.org/dale/picmicro.htm)
* Embedded Ethernet (http://www.embeddedethernet.com),
and Dennis Petrov's home page.

What I am looking for is an ethernet controller that is not surface mounted.
I am afraid that it is too difficult to sold surface mounted devices by hand. My intention is to build everything on an experiment circuit board (in my home country Sweden, these boards are called Vero-Boards).

So I wonder if anybody can help me finding an Ethernet controller which is
not surface mounted.

Thanks in advance
Gudmund Berggren

National Semiconductor used to make the 8390 series of Ethernet chips in DIL
packages. These are used on NE2000 controllers. Later versions come in surface
mount versions, but the earlier ones were DIL. I do not know if the DIL ones are
still available.

Surface mount should not be a problem to solder. There have been a number of
references in this list to pages showing how to do it.

I've looked for such myself without any luck.

If you are building a one-of-a-kind hobby project then you should consider
using the 3c509b implementation often referenced on this list. This takes a
standard PC network interface card and interfaces it to a PIC.

I'm not positive, but I don't think any of the earlier DIL 8390 series chips
contained internal buffer RAM. This would be a rather large hassle to deal
with.

As far as soldering 100 pin SMT devices. Not easy for my old eyes ;-)

Surface mount is really not that bad. See:
